Hey y’all. It’s good to bring the loupe back. When I began editing photography back in 1995 for Sports Illustrated, there was no digital images. We used a loupe (magnifying device) to sort through hundreds, maybe thousands of slides and film. For 2 years in 2014-15, I had a local to “Upstate” website named In the Loupe. On the site, I broke down the hundreds of photography submissions, showcased the winners, casted original shoots and kept everybody in the loop on future collaborations and events. That was for all photography categories: wedding, newborn, fashion, beauty, portrait, landscape and even composites.
In 2021, I revisit many of the same concepts with this column, but concentrate on fashion and beauty under my Stitched brand. So let’s dive right into the eye-catching stuff that these five professional photographers produced over the past couple months.
